I get a type=corr dataset now which include simple correlations only. I don't have other data.

I want to use this dataset to find partial correlations. However, SAS 9.2 do not allow me to use proc corr for a type=corr dataset. How can I find the partial correlations?

I don't think it can be done. SAS uses the corrected sums of squares and crossproducts of the residuals to obtain a partial correlation, and you need the original data for this.
